Last week we received help from our Operations Assistant 'Karen Baroudi' of the SIB International Liaison Unit in bringing delegates from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) together to learn about the LASD SHARE Program. SIB Captain Darren Harris and Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez took them for a tour of the media room.


Some of our executive staff members such as Commander Pat Nelson, Commander Darrell Bolin, Assistant Sheriff Bobby Denham, Assistant Sheriff Jill Serrano, Chief Joseph Gooden, and Under Sheriff Jacques La Berge stopped by to roll out the red carpet and welcome our guests from Congo. 
We couldn't have done this without help from the French interpreters and our very own Sheriff's Volunteer Martinez.

When #LASD's SHARE Program (Stop Hate And Respect Everyone) was launched in 2008, the team spent the majority or their time at the high schools throughout Los Angeles County. The program was meant to focus on the youth as they leave the grade school campuses and enter high school. They sometimes become involved in various cliques which may practice very negative views such as hate and intolerance.

The team spent much of this past summer attending community events and gatherings which allowed them to bring the SHARE Program to a younger audience. When school started this year, they began attending many junior high and elementary schools.
